While it was already known that Chris was “stepping aside” for a “period of time,” and he was replaced on Bachelorette by former contestants Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe, there were no announcements yet about a potential replacement host for Bachelor in Paradise.

The report also suggests there will be a “revolving cast of guests hosts — including somewhat surprising stand-in, Saturday Night Live legend David Spade.”

The SNL alum is a known super-fan of the show, and has provided hilarious commentary about the production on his social media. An insider adds to Page Six that “the producers want to put some fun in the show. They think it’s become too serious.”

One Bachelor ex-couple is making headlines regarding recent comments about their split.
